I sat in church the other morning thinking about my love for Christ, yet how quick I am to forget who I live this life on earth for. I feel I grasp him fleetingly and He vanishes like fog because of my intrusive thoughts of everyday life swirl around my head. I can so relate to this bible verse
I have been dwelling on my thoughts regarding hope for a few weeks now.
Even my blog is titled after the bible verse in Jeremiah in which God encourages the Israelistes while they were in exile…“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”
Lots of things are swirling around our country and world right now that can make one feel very hopeless. Even normal every day events can make one feel hopeless…
I have days that I feel down about our world and sometimes one of my kids…I become overwhelmed with emotions at times. Unfortunately as sinners we tend to put our hope in our husbands, kids, homes, the next adventure…whatever it may be instead of in Christ.
